Default Miss TDP Mary Sue Round 1 {Handdrawn} - 04-15-2012, 05:05 PM

Welcome to the second Miss TDP Mary Sue contest! Inspiration was taken from the Mary Sue pageant and combined with an idea of mine to make this contest. All are welcome to enter, experienced dollers and newbies alike, as it's not necessarily skill at dolling that will win this contest. PM me for help, if needed.

What you need to do is to create the most sickly sweet, the most hideous, the most convincing Mary Sue you can possibly imagine. If you don't know what a Mary Sue is, read this: {x} Create a doll portraying your Mary Sue in all her glory, and a profile to show off the full extent of her Sueishness. There will be four rounds, and each round is worth twenty points; ten for the doll and ten for the profile. These points will be awarded to each entry by the judges; myself and spirit_queen. The competitor with the most points at the end of competition will receive a doll made for them by one of the forum staff.

Example.



Base: http://www.abzdragon.com/bases.htm

Name: Tahirah Lilliane Jessamene Haviland.
Age: Sixteen.
Fandom: Harry Potter.
Appearence: Tahirah Lilliane Jessamene Haviland has long, beautiful tresses that shine like pure molten gold. She's slim, with curves in all the right places, a generous bosum and legs that seem to go on forever. Her eyes are like perfect sapphires and change colour with her mood. Her face is as beautiful as a dream of heaven, and her skin is softer than down.
Personality: Tahirah Lilliane Jessamene Haviland is kind, unselfish and loves to help out everyone. She is loved by all, cept for those girls who are jealous of her beauty and intelligence. All the boys have crushes on her.
Powers/Skills: She is an extremely skilled witch, and when she started at Hogwarts she was put straight into the second year due to her amazing skills at magic. Tahirah Lilliane Jessamene Haviland could do tremendously advanced spells when she arrived at the castle that even sixth years couldn't do, and had already mastered the Animagus spell. Her Animagus form is that of a flying rainbow unicorn.
Bio:Tahirah Lilliane Jessamene Haviland is a Ravenclaw, and a pureblood. Her parents are extremely wealthy and give her everything she wants. Tahirah Lilliane Jessamene Haviland wears beautiful dresses all the time, and wears her golden hair loose down her back. She passed her OWLs with perfect marks, which is the highest scores that any witch or wizard has ever gotten, and the entire school threw a party to celebrate her success. Tahirah Lilliane Jessamene Haviland was able to do a Patronus spell long before Harry, is much more clever than Hermione and outshines everyone in the school. Her sworn enemy is Cho Chang, who is jealous of Tahirah Lilliane Jessamene Haviland's beauty and intelligence, and who is constantly plotting against her.

General Competition Rules.

1. Character. When entering, you need to enter with one character and stay with it the entire time. This means that your dollís hair and skin colour must remain the same throughout, unless otherwise stated in the round theme.
2. Base. You must use the same base set throughout, so pick one with a variety of poses. This base should also be medium in size for handdrawn dollers (comparable in size to the Cora bases)Dollmaker users should use the shuni style base.
3. Theft. No stealing the work of another. This applies to both handdrawn and dollmaker participants, so do not submit a doll that someone else made or, for handdrawn dollers, mix and match pieces of completed dolls that are not your own. All work should be original and failure to comply will result in disqualification.
4. Props. Props and backgrounds are encouraged, but should not be massive. We will ask too large of entries to reduce their size, so be reasonable.
5. Transparency. We ask that all dolls have transparent background and is a GIF file. If you donít know how to do this, see the following thread: How to Make Backgrounds Transparent
6. Forbidden. Sexually explicit, nudity or overly bloody dolls are forbidden. Entering one could result in disqualification. Also, animation and glitter is not allowed as it creates an unequal field for those who can't animate.
7. Theme. Every doll should relate to the theme. While we encourage creativity, failure to keep with the theme can get you eliminated automatically that round.
8. Judges. No one is allowed to use friendship or promises to sway a judgeís decision. Threats, bribery, and attempts to interfere or discover the judgeís decisions in anyway will result in disqualification. Arguing with the judges can result in an automatic elimination.
9. Competing. You can only submit one entry for each competition, so choose wisely.
10. Entries. You may enter both competitions if you wish. Make sure, however, that you do not enter the same profile for both competitions; it must be different.


Each entry must consist of a doll, to represent the Mary Sue, and a filled out character profile/drabble, as in the example. Please choose one fandom (for example, Harry Potter) or crossover, and stick with that throughout the entire competition. I would advise you to not go for an obscure fandom, as doing so will make it difficult for the judges to fully judge your entry. In any case, the Mary Sue will be more powerful if everyone is aware what canon she's destroying. The Sue used in the example is a Sparklypoo Sue but you can use any kind; Gothic, Warrior, Tragic, Vampire etc. Be creative!


Round 1: Introducing The Mary Sue.

This round is for introducing your Mary Sue to us all, and showing us exactly what she's made of, whether it be sugar and spice and all things nice, or alternatively, rebellion and darkness and all things nasty.

Name: This is the name of your Mary Sue. Sues tend to have flowery names, with far too many middle names and sometimes names that describe their appearence.
Age: The Sue can be any age; she is often the most accomplished at a very young age in her chosen field.
Fandom: The fandom you have chosen. Crossovers are most definitely allowed; please list all concerned.
Appearence: The Mary Sue's appearence is the most important part. Be creative in describing her, use purple prose and flowery description.
Personality: Not as important as her appearance, but remember that Mary Sue has no faults to speak of.
Powers/Skills: Mary Sue may not have supernatural powers; if your Sue does not, then list any skills she might have.
Bio: This is where you introduce your Mary Sue to us and tell us about her back story.

Please submit all Dollmaker entries here. The end date is May 6th, tho in case of emergency (for example, illness, holidays), PM me and I will grant you an extention.

Good luck!
